Still Computing is a newsletter for curious programmers, largely written by members of the Recurse Center community.
This month, we’re trying something new: a bilingual issue! Puedes leer los textos que la componen en español aquí.
In our feature piece, Sol Sarratea follows her fascination with patterns in nature back to a 1952 paper by Alan Turing and walks through her implementation and visualization of his equations in Three.js and WebGL. Pedro Baumann explains how a group in Peru teaches incarcerated teens to program — without using the internet! — and Carolina Hadad explores how the representation of women in computing in popular culture has affected their representation in the industry.
We also have a Dear Zu question about programmer’s block, a new cartoon for you to caption, and more “What we’re coding to today.”
As always, we hope you’re staying safe and connected wherever you are — and we hope you enjoy reading!
